    HTC Eris OS discussion

    I am real interested in HTC eris...Played with droid and eris...and know for sure that no droid for me

    So...here is my question: Will HTC eris be updated to android 2.0 or 2.1 later down the road? Is that even a possibility?

    Also, let's have this thread for nice OS features...rumors of leaks , etc

    Yes the Eris OS can be updated. Rumor has it though it won't be getting 2.0 until 2010 were the Droid could be seeing 2.1 by the end of the year

    Josh is correct it can and will be updated next year some time.

    So far in talking with Josh he has the Droid I have the Eris.

    He has the compatibility to select multiple emails in both Gmail and other mail. Then choose delete or mark all. On the Eris you don't have that which is a bummer when you first sync your email over as you have to go through and mark each one read.

    But after that it isn't a big deal as I keep up on my email (hence owning a smart phone)

    Having 7 screens I thought was overkill but I am finding out in less then 1 day of use it is great to have them! I am filling them up fast with all the apps and widgets you can install.

    Eris is slower between program switching than the Droid but not enough to write home about, about on par with the Storm IMO.

    Eris doesn't have a built in task killer like the Droid --- But there is an app for that

    I don't know it is a tough choice for me. I feel I am missing out with 2.0 but I love the look and fell of the Eris.

    At least I use the right grammer.... but IMHO you can upgrade when 2.0 comes out to all devices.. if I had to get one would be the Eris
